What I did last Summer…

Well, another quarter is ready to begin and I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon the Summer vacation.   Summer break is an interesting time for me.   I have been described as a man in motion:   I am constantly working, crafting, or otherwise immersed in activity.   Which makes extended breaks difficult.   This year, Summer is 6 weeks long.

Six.  Long. Weeks.

So here it is:   I applied for unemployment, and dutifully looked for work all Summer long.   And (hopefully) they’ll decide to pay me soon so I can pay rent again.      I will say that unemployment is not fun, for anyone.    I’m grateful it is there, but I will say that it doesn’t pay enough to live on.   Thank goodness for savings… and (sadly) credit.    The upside of being unemployed:   I got to spend time with friends and family.   I got to reconnect with a few old friends, I spent some time writing and doing some creative projects,  I got to help out a dear friend with “home improvement”, and ziplining from really tall trees.

For one of my creative projects I decided to write a murder mystery dinner.    Fun was had by all.

Here was my murder victim.    During the second act of the murder mystery, she haunted certain characters.

And of course, there was home improvement for a friend.   “Home Improvement” for a dominatrix, by the way, means building cages.   Once I get this site set up for multiple bloggers, I have invited her to join us as a regular blogger.    I promise, I do not get to use her dungeon for my students… although I may fantasize from time to time.

This is what happens when you do home improvement for a dominatrix.

Ziplining photos aren’t in yet.   I may end up posting new photos soon… or I may just leave some things a mystery.  The zipline adventure was a bit of a challenge, although my friends assure me that the bungee jumping will be scarier.

Bring it on, I say.   Bring on the bungee jumping, bring on the classes, and just generally BRING IT.

I’m ready.
